Time for a movie night! On Friday, May 8, we’ll be watching the Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I, starring Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara (Anna Leonowens), Ken Watanabe (The King), Tony Award winner Ruthie Ann Miles (Lady Thiang), Dean John-Wilson (Lun Tha), and Na-Young Jeon (Tuptim).

Viewers can watch for free at 8 PM ET on BroadwayHD by clicking here. While the film—captured in 2018 at The London Palladium Theatre—is free for everyone in North America to enjoy, those participating in the live viewing party are encouraged to support industry professionals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by making a tax-deductible donation to The Actors Fund, by visiting ActorsFund.org/TheKingAndI.
The stream will be available for 48 hours, beginning at 8 PM ET, May 8.
